Greetings Blessings and Peace to You!

(Dua Pose)

The pose I am doing you will see often on the Temple reliefs that we will visit on the tour. Dua means adorations and when you see it on the reliefs it is being done to acknowledge the essence of a person that is beyond physicality.

Lawrence Mathews (Anpu Waset), has studied the culture and philosophy of the ancient native peoples of the land today called Egypt for the past 15 years under the guidance of Dr. Muata Ashby. During this time through his Opening The Way Publishing Company he created the “Inspirational Philosophy” genre of writing and has published five books, three Special Mini-Reports and a “Know Thyself” three and six month e-course.  Inspirational Philosophy applies ancient philosophical principals to common situations of today in an inspirational way.

In the earlier time of his life he was an educator for ten years, a professional manager for five years and practiced law for ten years. As an attorney, he has practiced before the Michigan Supreme Court, the Michigan Court of Appeals and the United States District Courts for both the Eastern and Western Districts of Michigan.

He believes that the purpose of life is to “Know Thyself” at the deepest level of our being by awakening to the answer of the question “Who Am I?” His products and programs assist others with achieving this purpose.

“The secrets of the universe cannot be discovered through study and research alone but the honest search for truth and the development of an incorruptible mind qualifies the seeker for higher instruction.”


“Make your life the subject of intense inquiry, in this way you will discover its goal, direction and destiny.”

-Ancient African Egyptian Proverbs
